Wedding Dresses of Stellar Brides
Perhaps I’m guilty of over-thinking sometimes but I started wondering if a bride’s choice of wedding dresses was to make a statement. I know a bride will choose a wedding gown that flatters her figure but does the selection run to an even deeper rationale? For instance, why will a girl engaged to be married look at wedding dress reviews in a bridal magazine to see what famous person wore which wedding gown.
I remember when Princess Diana got married. (God, am I really that old?) Info on the wedding dress the future Princess of Wales had selected was held tight like it was a vital state secret. The British royal family was deathly afraid that someone would leak the wedding dress particulars and suddenly brides all the world over would be copying Diana’s style before her to steal Di’s nuptial thunder.
The same top secrecy surrounded the bridal gown that J’lo would wear in her aborted wedding to Ben Affleck. I think I recall similar controversy regarding what Wedding frock Angelina Jollie would be attired in for her waltz up the aisle with Brad Pitt but by then I’d already given up on noticing what the rich and famous were doing. I suppose I should’ve given the matter of wedding dress selection my attention then and written this article two decades ago. But I didn’t so let’s now jump one generation ahead to now when Princess Diana’s son William married Kate.
I imagine the ultra-confidential secret of what bridal dress Kate would be donning for her royal marriage was as tightly held or maybe the secrecy surrounding the wedding dress was held to an even higher level of national security. I know the bridal magazines are still as prominently displayed on bookseller’s racks and girls still seem to want to make an impact with their choice of wedding gowns.
So what really is my point here? Damn, I’ve even got myself wondering that right now. I don’t know if I actually have much of a moral to express. This bit on wedding dresses is more to simply illustrate an opinion.
At all the weddings I’ve ever attended, the bride has looked splendid in her wedding dress but I say that even if the bride was wearing a white plastic garbage bag as a bridal gown with holes torn out for her arms and legs she would’ve still been radiant because all brides are on their special day. It’s never the wedding dress that makes the bride but rather that the bride makes the bridal gown shine.
If only more soon to be wed girls realized that a famous designer wedding dress label wasn’t nearly as important as a blushing bride attired in her own wedding day charm and inner beauty. I’m reminded of a Star Trek Next Generation Episode where Commander Ryker was marrying the Deanna Troi. Her unique heritage called for both the bride and groom to be fully unclothed when wed. Seeing that bride walk down the aisle without a bridal dress at all would probably prove my point if she were a real person and not a fictional character.

And all the security expenses could’ve been spared because a stellar bride like Princess Kate, or Princess Diana before her, would’ve been stunning even in a white flour sack as a bridal dress and even if 10,000 brides around the world on the weekend previous had worn exactly the same wedding dress.
